On January 30th 2020 Agoria Real Estate, better known as BluePoint Meet.Work.Tech., will open its second Tech.Lounge in Antwerp.
Tech.Lounge Antwerpen is an ultra-modern co-working space equipped with new technological applications and consists of 1,000 m2 of workspaces with flexible workplaces, small offices, relaxation and networking zones, meeting rooms as well as a digital Brainstorm Lounge.
The massive rise of co-working in recent years has convinced Agoria Real Estate, the real estate company of Agoria (federation of the technology industry) to supplement its own range of workspaces and develop its own concept.
Exactly two years ago, Agoria Real Estate opened Tech.Lounge Brussels on the 4th floor of the current BluePoint Brussels, business and congress centre. This co-working space consists of 1,200 m² and has been completely transformed and equipped into subtly divided workspaces. Here users will find all the resources they need to develop their professional activities.
The opening of Tech.Lounge Antwerpen on the 3rd floor of the BluePoint Antwerp Conference and Business Centre in Berchem, is a great expansion for the co-workers in Brussels who can now also enjoy a hub in Antwerp and vice versa.
The Tech.Lounge concept is aimed at start-ups, scale-ups and young entrepreneurs, as well as freelancers looking for a creative environment and who are inspired by technology. People who want to enthusiastically participate in a community where the sharing of ideas and know-how is encouraged.
It is a stimulating place and an ideal venue for business meetings outside the city centre without wasting time, which is useful for commuters for example.
The close collaboration with Agoria and its experts also makes this new business centre attractive to member companies of Agoria and other companies active in the technology industry.
Concept and design :
The concept and interior of the Tech.Lounge Antwerpen has been designed by Agoria Real Estate itself and is very recognizable for those who already know Tech.Lounge Brussels.
The project meets the needs and values of a modern co-working space: a creative environment, both fun and professional, where users have a multi-application technology infrastructure at their disposal, to facilitate the work process and stimulate collaboration between the working community.
Although the Tech.Lounge in Antwerp is an extension of the concept of its Brussels counterpart, this new co-working space stands out because of its even more cosy and familiar atmosphere, its high ceilings and the large, bright spaces that provide even more inspiration and creativity.
The Tech.Lounge consists of various work and relaxation areas :
- 40 flex workstations spread over the entire floor.
- 10 private offices.
- 1 hyper modern office of 130m², ideal for a young and dynamic company who wants to attract and retain young talents.
- The Brainstorm Lounge is equipped with a 4.60 m wide “Nureva Span” brainstorm screen (https://www.nureva.com/span-system) which stimulates the exchange of ideas in a group. All ideas are retained in a comprehensive canvas in the cloud that is as easily accessible from the screen as from any of the participants’ mobile devices.
- The informal zone is the heart of the Tech.Lounge and the eye-catcher is the 7m identical American Airstream caravan in the atmosphere of an American Diner, where drinks and unlimited coffee is available.
An electronic pinball machine as well as a real Arcade gaming station keep the coworkers entertained.
- The relaxation room has a real pool table as well as a library and fireplace.
- Two meeting rooms can be used for video conferencing, for example.
For 30 euros per day the “co-worker” benefits next to access to the entire Tech.Lounge infrastructure, from a wide range of on-site services such as personal welcome, high speed Wi-Fi, audio-visual assistance, IT services and printing facilities.
Monthly subscriptions for a flex desk starts as from 295 euros per person. The monthly fee for private & serviced office starts as from 650 euros.
All Agoria members benefit (under certain conditions) from free access to the Tech.Lounge’s workspace.
Tech.Lounge Antwerp is located in a green and quiet area, 10 minutes from Berchem train station and offers easy parking facilities, both above and below ground.
